Suing the pension funds BECAUSE they divested? Shame on you!

A shady, Koch Brothers-adjacent, dark-money, union-busting group called "Americans for Fair Treatment" is suing three NYC pension funds to reverse their historic divestment from fossil fuels. AFFT is in Pennsylvania - but their law firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher is right here. Let's shame Gibson Dunn and draw public attention to this cynically irresponsible and entirely political lawsuit.
Press conference and rally sponsored by Third Act NYC, Fridays for Future, Kids Fight Climate Change, DivestNY, 350NYC, GreenFaith and others (list in formation). Hear from pension beneficiaries, lawyers, and youth - the real victims of AFFT's duplicitous game - about just how wrong (and dangerous) this lawsuit is. Come make your voice heard - join us! And if you're a member of the NYCERS, BERS, or TRS pension plan, we especially need you! Please RSVP and write us at email@example.com.
